Turkey’s Erdogan sees Syria as safe zone in place within months

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan says Turkey has expected a safe zone to be in place in Syria along the Turkish border within a few months.

In a speech in Erzurum province, Erdogan said a 1998 agreement with Syria allowed Turkey to enter Syrian territory when it faces threats.

He said that it was out of the question for an international coalition to form the safe zone.
